A beautiful example of what it to come

We are to have temps in the high 60's today, and I for one am a happy Camper..ehehe   I'm so tired of the cold this Winter showed us...and am pleased to see Spring just ahead.  I haven't been creating  paintings or jewelry much at all since the beginning of 2015.  I think my MUSE took a road trip to Florida.   

I can't wait to get my hands in the garden to add bright colors to what's been so full of snow for months now.  We have lost several large old trees to the harsh weather and severe storms, and the damage done to our very expensive fence will take some time to replace.   

I have been going through room after room pulling out things we haven't used in at least a year to take to our favorite thrift store.  the SPCA  will sell and contribute to the care of the animals they have....I'd say that's a win win situation, wouldn't you?

Love and peace to my friends.

Another Birthday "Thank God"

Good morning friends, today is my 72nd Birthday, and as many of you know I share it with my twin Brother, Tom!  I just finished talking to him wishing him an awesome day, and as always he reminded me that I'm the older twin by 5 mins.  I didn't really need to hear that this morning for all I have to do is look in the mirror to see all the age lines....they are great reminders of all the wonderful years I've been blessed to have lived.  God's been my constant companion over all those years, guiding me through the good, and not so good days!!!   The older I get the faster the years and days go.  I try to make the best of each minute giving God thanks for all the great friends, and of course my awesome family.  So I want to wish those who are also celebrating this great day either having a Birthday too, or an anniversary...May each of you have a beautiful, blessed day....hugs!!!

A little about me!

My photo

Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren.  My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry.  On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs.  Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
